This was a gift for my partner. In person color is beautiful in the bottle and on paper. Flows well in his everyday LAMY Safari.
The Monteverde California Teal is an excellent sheening ink. And the service and price from Truphae is great as well.
This ink is soooooo good!!! On regular paper it writes a nice Darkish green which still can be used in most situations, but when it hits paper like Rhodia and Tomeo, uuuugh it’s even better. It still goes on dark green/dark teal but then it hits you.... there’s hints of red in it! This is by far my favorite ink and it’s so well behaved. I’ll be buying another 90ml bottle just to have it ready when I go through this one.
